LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The center court section of the Georgia Dome floor where Louisville won its third men's national basketball championship will soon hang in the lobby of the Yum Center.

Officials say the 26- by 22-foot section will be unveiled Saturday. The floor will be visible through the glass facade of the center from outside the building.

Northwestern Mutual is an official corporate sponsor of the NCAA and donated the center court section to U of L. The rest of the floor is being sold as souvenir pieces to benefit pediatric cancer research.

The unveiling is set for 11:30 a.m. EDT Saturday.
